Model Kate Upton, best known for being a cover model in the Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and being the face of the mobile app “Game of War: Fire Age’s” Ads is opening up about Terry Richardson. Richardson has been the subject of controversy in the past after he was accused of sexual assault, allegedly coercing models into undesired sexual behaviors and poses and inappropriate sexual behavior.
Richardson released a video of Upton dancing to the “Cat Daddy” and the video received over 20 million views on YouTube. That video is said to have helped launch and skyrocket her career. Upton however, was not happy about the video being released. In a recent interview, the model says “”I was like, that was disrespectful, you could have told me!” but she also says that she is not holding a grudge against the photographer, adding “”Now, obviously, it’s fine.”
Upton has also tried her hand at acting, starring in “The Other Woman” with Cameron Diaz who praised the model saying “She completely leans into the character and she knows it, she knows how to read the situation and deliver right to her character for that moment. We were all like, ‘Who are you? Where did you come from!”
